I'd rate the win over Hill as his best, then Cuevas, though I think the performance of his career was the loss to Leonard in 81.
The duran that hearns beat was much better than the cuevas that hearns beat.
It certainly wasn't a prime duran, but a past prime duran was still better than most boxers out there.
His win over hill is ridiculous. A past prime ww has no right outboxing the best lhw in the world.
